FC Dallas coach Hyndman welcomes deal for Germinal Beerschot midifelder Daniel Cruz
FC Dallas has signed Colombian midfielder Daniel Cruz, the club announced today.
"Daniel Cruz was a player we put on our discovery list probably back in February," said FC Dallas head coach Schellas Hyndman. "We felt like he could be one of those players who could contribute to our team and our style of play in the midfield, but he's also versatile enough to be a second striker. He works on both sides of the ball. He's extremely talented, very skillful.
"He's got great experience, good vision and good tactical sense. He seems to be a man of good character. When you put all of those qualities together, I think he's going to be a really good fit for FC Dallas."
Cruz spent the majority of his professional career with Germinal Beerschot in the Belgian Pro League where he captained his side to a 2005 Belgian Cup title. The 30-year-old midfielder made more than 150 appearances in league play for Germinal Beerschot, tallying 12 goals.
